The exciting Week 3 Cincinnati Bengals' win over the Baltimore Ravens was typical of some of the wacky head-to-heads we have seen over the past couple of years. Cincinnati faced adversity in the second half, but rallied as the trailed for the first time all season. The result is the second consecutive season the Bengals have started 3-0.

As a result of the win, there were a number of high-impact players worthy of the weekly Most Valuable Player designation. Cast your vote and sound off on your selection in the comments section!

Andy Dalton, QB: It was another good at the office for the Bengals' signal-caller. Dalton was 20-of-passing (62.5%), a career-high 383 passing yards and four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing). Sure, those stats were great, but what might have been more impressive is Dalton's pocket presence, dispersal of the football and grit to get the comeback win.

A.J. Green, WR: The comeback wouldn't have happened without another Bengals player having a career day. After a somewhat sluggish start to the season after signing a mega-contract, Green exploded, as he has often done, against the Ravens on Sunday. He had ten catches for 227 yards and two scores, one being an incredible 80-yarder.

Marvin Jones, WR: A bit overshadowed by his counterpart, Jones had a highlight-reel day himself. He finished with five catches, 94 yards and a touchdown. The biggest was the one-hander for 31 yards in tight coverage which led to the game-winning score. Dalton is sure loving having No. 82 back.
